military community where he plans to highlight painful cuts they say for the pentagon and the u.s. navy. but republican leaders calling on the president to quote, stop campaigning and help them solve the problem. but at the moment, there are no meetings planned between any of these sides, the house, the senate, the white house and they're taking friday off as of now. martha: all right. well the looming budget cuts were high on the agenda when the president sat down with the national governors association yesterday. arizona governor jan brewer went "on the record" with greta van susteren to get her impressions exactly what happened at that meeting. here's that. >> you know, he definitely says he wants to work together but obviously he doesn't want to compromise one little bit. bottom line he wants to raise taxes. and he doesn't want to cut. i think the american people believed, that the time now is to start cutting the budget. martha: so when it came to compromising governor brewer went on to say that the president said that the elections were basically behind him and that he was going t
this morning and a health care burden for the u.s. neurologists predict the number of alzheimer's patients is expected to triple by the year 2050. that's when as many as 14 million patients may need care for the disease. the startling projection follows a study of patient records, as well as census numbers. >> doctors are warning parents about a strain of whooping cough. the new england journal"the new medicine" reports it's caused by a vaccine resistant strain. it's the worst outbreak of its kind in 60 years. >>> and what will be the story of the weekend. a powerful blizzard is zeroing in on the northeast, threatening to bring fierce winds and up to two feet of snow. the nor'easter expected to be the worst in years, is moving in from the gulf coast and the great lakes. snow is coming down this morning in chicago. but by tomorrow night, this storm will be unleashing heavy snow on boston and coastal new england. and that storm, as you know, could make a mess out of travel, even before the first flakes fall. some airlines announced plans to relax rebooking rules so passengers can change flig

if the u.s. government is going to continue executing u.s. citizens with drone strikes there need to be some checks and balances in place to make sure the american being targeted is really associated with al qaeda and really can not be captured. to minimize the possibility of a lethal operation against an innocent person and the senate intelligence committee chair, senator dianne feinstein, says she thinks there will soon be a quote, new day of transparency? >> at one point it was a limited covert program. now everybody knows about it and i think we need to see that this program is really run according to the american constitution and according to law. >> reporter: brennan said yesterday he never believed it is better to kill a terrorist than to detain one for intelligence-gathering purposes. he also offered a new position on enhanced interrogation. in 2007 he said it saved lives but yesterday he said he personally objected to techniques like waterboarding when he was with the cia but never tried to prevent them because they were being used in a different part of the agency. rick?
he's doing. >> reporter: but why now? dorner was honorably discharged from the u.s. navy reserve just last friday after ten years' service. including a tour in the persian gulf. was that the trigger for this killing spree? or evidence of careful planning? >> i have more questions than i do have answers at this point. >> reporter: if dorner gets his apparent wish, if he is killed, we might never know the whole truth. nick watt, abc news, los angeles. >> wow. and this 6,000 word manifesto gives some scary insight into what he is thinking. one part in the document where he writes, self-preservation is no longer important to me. i do not fear death, as i died long ago on 1-2-09, referring to the day that he was fired. >> right. >> from the force here. so this is a guy as you heard from the piece who is looking to kill and be killed. that's what makes him so dangerous. >> this manifesto is interesting. he kind of switches between completely insane and 100% lucid. >> yes. >> he talks about two different political figures and different stars on television almost like this is something he now

on a document released to a senate committee in june of last year that lays out u.s. policy on when drone attacks may be used against u.s. citizens abroad. specifically the white paper's focus is on who may be the focus of these attacks and at what point a threat is considered imminent. for more we bring in the man who broke this story, the great nbc's mike isikoff. mike, welcome. let's make it clear, if he can, from the beginning, whom does this memo encompass? for instance, would it include an al qaeda agent, say, living in europe, in germany, or in the united kingdom? >> most likely not. the memo lays out a three-part test for who can be targeted by a pilotless drone strike if there is a belief that the individual, the target, is an al qaeda operational leader. number one, there has to be what the memo describes as an imminent threat of a violent attack against the united states. number two, capture of that individual is not feasible. and number three, the operation has been under applicable law of war principles. if you go to the second part of that test, capture is unfeasible, it pro
